Starlin Castro has played the bulk of the season in three separate lineup spots for the Chicago Cubs and none of them seem to be the one best suited for his abilities, which is the way manager Dale Sveum sees it.

For the time being, Castro has been able to stop his rapidly plummeting batting average from the No. 5 spot in the lineup. His batting average dropped to .272 on Tuesday and it has hovered around that mark for the last week.

According to Sveum, though, Castro's current skill set doesn't suit him to being a No. 5 hitter or a No. 2 or No. 3 hitter, which are the other two spots he has been used most this season.

"What makes sense the way he hits, not really working counts and working walks, probably in a real world in a prolific offense probably would be more towards the sixth and seventh spots really," Sveum said.
